Available Bodies of Water

Lake George

Nicknamed the “Queen of Lakes”, and recently voted "Cleanest Lake in the United States", Lake George is as scenic as it gets with its crystal-clear water and gorgeous mountain backdrop. The lake is 32 miles long and has two different ends called the North and South end. We will be leaving from Dunham's Bay Marina (South End), located at 2036 Bay Rd, Lake George, NY 12845, on our open water trips (This about 10 minutes from Lake George Village). If you enjoy the feel of ice fishing, this your chance to vertically jig huge Lake Trout during their most active months. By using Garmin Livescope technology, you will have the ability to watch a fish chase your bait all the way from the bottom to the top. There is nothing more exhilarating than having the chance to catch a lake trout at over 100’ of water. If deepwater lake trout isn't your thing, then we can switch gears and target Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass that can be found along the rocky points and weed beds in the lake. Captain Drew Ziehnert took 3rd during the 2023 King George Derby for Bass, so if your looking to catch a trophy Largemouth or Smallmouth than look no further. A 50-100 bass day is certainly not uncommon, as the lake is loaded with hard fighting fish.


We currently offer guided trips on Lake George for the following species:

  • Lake Trout

  • Atlantic Salmon (Winter Only)

  • Smallmouth Bass

  • Largemouth Bass

  • Panfish (Yellow Perch, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed and Rock Bass)

Lake George Trophy Lake Trout

Saratoga Lake

Saratoga Lake is located in Saratoga Springs, NY and is around 5 miles long. In the springtime, it is a Bass Fishermans paradise as we have multiple 80+ Largemouth Bass days every year. The bite definitely gets tougher as the year goes on, so we recommend booking a trip on Saratoga Lake between May-July during the prime fishing months. The lake holds a variety of species to target including Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Yellow Perch, Walleye, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Bluegill, Rock bass, and Black Crappie. Although finding trophy sized fish becomes more difficult due to the heavy pressure the lake receives, the opportunity to catch a wide variety of species makes this lake a blast to fish. We also target panfish in the spring, summer, and fall which provide tons of action for children and families that want more of a leisure experience.


Tournaments: Captain Drew Ziehnert won Saratoga Lake Angler of the year in 2022 and took 2nd in 2023. He wins multiple tournaments on the lake every year so if your looking to learn how to fish the lake and learn it's secrets, consider booking a bass trip!

We currently offer guided trips on Saratoga Lake for the following species:

  • Largemouth Bass

  • Smallmouth Bass

  • Chain Pickerel

  • Walleye

  • Panfish (Black Crappie, Yellow Perch, Pumpkinseed and Bluegill)

Saratoga Lake Bass

Lake Lonely

Lake Lonely is located in Saratoga Springs, directly next to Saratoga Lake, NY and is around 1 mile long. We call it the "hidden gem" of Saratoga as it's super private and quiet all through the year. We can only fish this lake in our aluminum bass boat, but don't let this little lake fool you, our clients have caught some huge Northern Pike from here. The Launch is run by Lake Lonely Watersports so getting in and out can be tricky at times, but it can provide a much quieter weekend experience in the summer compared to Saratoga Lake. 

We currently offer guided trips on Lake Lonely for the following species:

  • Largemouth Bass

  • Northern Pike

  • Black Crappie

  • Panfish (Black Crappie, Yellow Perch, Bluegill and Pumpkinseed)

Lake Lonely Pike

Hudson River

On a scenic stretch of the Hudson River in Schuylerville NY, just 14 miles from Saratoga Springs, sits a quiet section of the river loaded with fish. We have caught everything from huge Channel Catfish to Trophy Northern Pike. It is one of the few places on the river where there is a section that becomes frozen enough to ice fish. We have private access to fish it during the winter months and have put dozens of clients on 35"+ Northern Pike. This is by far my favorite place to ice fish as you never really know what you will catch on any given day. You will have the opportunity to catch Walleye, Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, White Crappie, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Bluegill, Yellow Perch, Channel Catfish, and the occasional Bowfin.

We currently offer guided trips on the Hudson River for the following species:

  • Northern Pike

  • Black Crappie

  • Yellow Perch

  • Bluegill

  • Pumpkinseed

  • Channel Catfish
